Update From My End Of The Universe...

So way back in ... well, I suppose the end of March or April... holy cow, that was a long time ago! I fell in the street, but open my left leg and twisted my right ankle.

My knee has since healed up, but I still can't put pressure on it right now. My right foot is a whole other story. They never gave me the proper equipment, meaning a boot or brace. I had it wrapped and elevated. Over the months it just got worse.

I have since seen an orthopedic doctor and I basically had a rolling sprain, where my foot rolled inside my shoe. I also have bone spurs on my heel, my arch is falling and I have stress fractures in the ball of my foot. Needless to say, it's been painful.

I have spent the last month in a boot, with a knee walker. If you don't know what a knee walker is, it's a scooter for grown-ups with a foot problem. Lol! I also have a cane and crutches when needed.

Recent visit with the doc and I have two more weeks in the boot. After that, I may need an MRI.

Can I just say it's hell to get old? I mean, really. Doesn't help that I have extra weight on me that surely did me no good. I just want out of this boot!

Aside from that, not a whole lot going on. At least, not that I can disclose just yet. I know. Secrets!!!

I'm wanting to try and look on the positive side of things, so I may do 30 days of gratitude posts. Fair warning. ::winks::

I hope you are all well. I hope those of you in the States have a happy and safe 4th of July! I'll see you all soon.

Shame on them for not fixing you up right away. Yes, it does suck to get older. I've yet to see an upside to getting older.
